Watermelon Math for Preschoolers {TTBH Summer School #2}

Welcome to session two of Teaching Together Blog Hop Summer School! Our lovely guest host this month is Meghan from The Adventure Starts Here and she is an awesome crafter!

Well, I've had watermelon on the brain lately (is it not the perfect summer fruit?) and I had an "aha" moment when I realized watermelon is perfect for teaching preschool math concepts of fractions!
A fun way to introduce Preschoolers to the concept of fractions using watermelon "slices"
I got busy tracing, cutting, gluing and measuring and created these cute slices perfect for little minds and hands. Kinsey helped me place the seeds and loved putting them together like puzzle pieces. Please forgive my horrid ruler skills (does anyone else have issues using one? I swear it's torture trying to measure out straight lines.) as those slices are not perfect quarters, sigh.
Now it's your turn! Thanks for joining AmandaBethCourtneyCourtneyStephanie and me for the first installment of Summer School! Our next TTBH Summer School link up will be on Thursday, August 4th and Leah will be our new guest host! And I'll be having a special guest post you won't want to miss!
